FOCUS ON MINDSET:
Being a sales person is no easy task.
With all of the selling going on in Facebook ads and other digital marketing today, it can get a little overwhelming.
I personally use a ton of sales tactics when I market my products.
But you can't rely on them.
Because your customer's lives are already full of demands.
Including, money, time, relationships, family, other commitments, and other priorities.
You have to learn to sell with ease. And a big part of selling with ease is a good sales mindset.
So I wanted to share a few thoughts on sales mindset to help you succeed with your sales.
1. Show your customer how you’re going to help them.
2. Show your customer how you can help them save time, money, or relationships.
3. Show your customer the pain you’re going to help them avoid.
4. Show your customer that they have a problem, and that you have a solution.
5. Show your customer that the product you’re selling is going to make their life easier.
I use these steps in all of my marketing and in my day to day life. You can use them too.
One last thing.
We all know people who say things like, “I’m not a salesperson” or “I’m not good at selling”
Well, who the hell said that you need to be a “salesperson” or that you need to be good at selling?!?
You don’t need to be a “salesperson.”
You need to take your product and show your customer how it’s going to help them.
You need to show them the pain it’s going to help them avoid.
You need to show them how it can help them save time, money, or relationships.
It’s not about how good you are at selling.
It’s about how good you are at showing your product to your customer.
There you go. Three steps that I personally use every day.
I would love to hear your thoughts on this.

Gratitude Day is celebrated annually on the 21st September. The celebration of Gratitude Day allows both individual citizens and organisations within wider society to celebrate the broad meaning of gratitude in a variety of ways.
Learn about World Gratitude Day
World Gratitude Day has been designed to bring the whole world together in a day that is all about being thankful. World Gratitude Day joins organizations, nationals, and individuals in sharing their gratitude in a number of different ways.
A little bit of gratitude can go a very long way. It is important for people to feel appreciated for everything that they do. There are also many other benefits that are associated with giving gratitude. Did you know that it is actually good for your own health too? Being thankful results in a whole host of emotional and physical benefits. For instance, you can boost your immune system, lower stress levels and improve sleep by being thankful.
If that was not enough, gratitude can also help to improve self-esteem and lower symptoms of depression. If all of this was not enough, you can enhance your professional and social skills too. Who knew that expressing gratitude could offer so many amazing benefits?
History of World Gratitude Day
The celebration started in 1965 in Hawaii when an international gathering decided that it would be a good idea to have one day per year to formally express gratitude and appreciation for the many wonderful things to be found in the world. Following the meeting in Hawaii, many attendees marked Gratitude Day on 21st September 1966 when back in their own countries. Ever since then, the number of people celebrating Gratitude Day across the world has grown and grown.
How to celebrate World Gratitude Day
The awareness of the benefits of having time in one’s life for gratitude, appreciation and positive reflection have become increasingly apparent. The hope of the founders of Gratitude Day is that by taking time, one day a year, to reflect on the many amazing things we have in our lives, it would positively impact our well-being and make us happier, more contented people.
There are so many different ways that you can be thankful on World Gratitude Day. This includes simply being thankful for the fact that you have woken up and experienced a brand new day. There are lots of other things that you should be thankful for as well. If you have a pet, your loyal pet is definitely worthy of your gratitude. You can also be thankful for the beautiful nature, which provides us with sunsets and many other blessings. We often take our health for granted as well, yet this is another thing that you should appreciate. You can also be grateful for your job, which gives you a purpose, feeds your children, and pays the bills. You can also be thankful for the roof that is over your head. Some people don’t have a home to live in, and so this is something you should always be grateful for.
There are a number of different things that you can do in order to celebrate World Gratitude Day. One thing that you can do is starting keeping a gratitude journal. This is something that everyone in the family can do. You can make sure you write down all of the things that you are thankful for. Keeping a gratitude journal has been shown to increase people’s sense of happiness by forcing them to acknowledge the happy and positive moments in their day, irrespective of how insignificant they may appear. Whether it is an awe-inspiring sunset, a compliment from a friend, or just a smile from a stranger, we can all feel more joyful and a lot calmer if we appreciate these experiences. This is the sort of activity that all ages can get involved with. In fact, we think it is a great thing for children to do because it helps them to appreciate the things they have in life.
It is also a good idea to try and eat together as a family on World Gratitude Day. It does not matter whether your family is whole, broken, or blended, all families are beautiful and it is important to be thankful for the different people that we have in our lives. Having a meal together and enjoying some family time is important. You can all take about your day and discuss the different things that you are thankful for. One idea that is becoming very popular is to have a gratitude jar whereby you can put in thankful statements throughout the year. You can then read through them on World Gratitude Day.
Aside from the ideas that have been suggested so far, another way to spend World Gratitude Day effectively is to take the time to help those that are less fortunate than us. Unfortunately, there are a lot of people that do not have a roof over their heads nor do they have any food on the table. This is why it is important for people that are in more privileged positions to do their bit in order to help. If you take a look online, you will be able to find more about the work that is being done by amazing charities, organizations, homeless shelters and such like. You can offer a donation or you can donate your time instead. Of course, there are ways that you can help the less fortunate without going through these sorts of organizations. You could, for example, donate some of the things that you no longer want or need to those that are less fortunate, such as an old computer or smartphone. You can also put together food parcels for families that need them in your local area as well. If you do a bit of digging online, you will find plenty of inspirational stories about how people have helped others and these can inspire you too. ... See MoreSee Less

Selling isn't a dirty word
So… I see a lot of people talking about how they don't like to sell. I understand what they mean, but I think they are missing a HUGE opportunity.
To me, selling isn't a dirty word. 🤦🏼 Selling is easy.
Selling with ease is a different story. 🧠
That's where the challenge lies. 🤔
I do believe that everyone is a salesperson. 🚀
A lot of people don't realize this because they have been programmed to think that sales is a bad thing. 🙄
They have been told that sales is sleazy and manipulative. 🤔
They have been told that sales is all about pushing people to do things they don't want to do. 🤔
They have been told that sales is something reserved for a different sort of person. 🤔
This is just plain wrong. 🤭
The fact of the matter is that you have a product, a service, a course, a membership, a book, a service, a membership…
And you need to figure out a way to get people to fall in love with it. 💗
Let's break this down into three parts.
First, you need to define what it is that you are selling. ✋🏼
Second, you need to figure out the best way to get it into the hands of the people who need it. ❓
And third, you need to figure out how to make sure they LOVE it.
If you can get the first two done, the third one usually follows naturally. 👍
To do all of this, you don't need to be pushy. 🤦🏼
You don't need to be manipulative. 🤦🏼
You don't need to be sleazy. 🤦🏼
You just need to be clear. 🧠
You need to be nurturing. ❤️
You need to be helpful. ❤️
You need to be encouraging. 🙌
You need to ask the right questions. 😉
And you need to be consistent. ✊🏼
And it's okay if you don't feel like you are good at all of this or if it isn't easy for you or if you aren't sure what to do or if you are afraid to talk about it. 🤓😠
That stuff is hard for me too. 😂😂😂
The fact is that you are selling something.
And if you are reading this, you are most likely selling something that you care about. 💗
And if you put in the work to make sure that your product or service is amazing, the selling part will be easy. 🧠 ... See MoreSee Less

Stop being pushy!
Let guests know they are welcome to purchase but don’t force it! And the best way to do that is to be available to chat and get to know your guests.
You will get great feedback, get to know your guests and get sales!
Stop pushing your business to your guests!
If you’re pushing too hard too early to sell, you’re going to miss out on so many opportunities.
The best way to get sales and grow your down-line is to establish a relationship and be available to chat and get to know your guests. With this approach, you’ll get lots of feedback and will learn so much about your guests and their needs and wants.
It’s a great way to get to know your guests and get to know what they want and need. ... See MoreSee Less
Talking Ethics Tips:
I will never be pushy, but I can help......
Today I was reading a bunch of magazines, and the same trend struck me over and over again.
The problem is...they all fall into the same trap: they want to sell. But you and I both know, the only reason we buy anything is because we need it.
What we don't need we can't buy.
So what struck me is this: there's so much unsold potential all around us.
Let me help.
I will never be pushy, but I can help.
I can help you learn to share your gift with as many people as possible. It still won't be easy, but it will be worth it.
Let's work together.
Let's create something that will live beyond ourselves.
